Projects / wchat


wchat is a telnet based Chat Server written in C. It is designed to use minimal CPU and memory resources, and to be a modular high-level code base. What this means is that all low-level functions are written in separate libraries which wchat uses, allowing any additions or changes to the functionality of the chat to be very simple and straightforward. wchat is an extremely stable and solid base from which to build a chat environment. wchat is not a web-chat, but is commonly connected to via standard mud clients.
